Ported enclosure with dual 12" CompR subwoofers
Our take on the Kicker 40DCWR122 by Crutchfield's John Pollard
A match made in heaven...or Oklahoma
Kicker's 40DCWR122 loaded enclosure puts a pair of thumping 12" CompR subs behind your music. The rugged ported box was designed specifically for the subs, so you can count on getting maximum performance, no matter what kind of tunes you enjoy.
The specially designed port gives you more bass without sounding sloppy.
Two hard-hitting CompR subs
Each 12” CompR subwoofer features a tough, polypropylene cone that stays rigid during intense play sessions so you hear accurate bass. A custom-designed back and top plate give the woofers plenty of room to travel, while the durable rubber surround helps to control cone movement during a heavy workout. These subs use extensive venting in their heavy steel baskets to shrug off heat, so you can count on reliable performance.
Sturdy medium-density fiberboard ensures long-lasting performance from the enclosure, and the special-design side port enhances bass production without getting sloppy. The enclosure's 2-ohm impedance draws maximum power from your mono amplifier. This Kicker will handle up to 1000 watts RMS, so make sure you pick an amp that'll make those CompR subs happy.
Very good looking subs, pound even better than they look. Have them hooked up to the cx1200.1 and even with the amp turned down they pounded plenty for me. Turned the amp all the way up after break in period of two weeks and about crapped my pants.

Why did you buy this?
Cause it's pretty [ Cristine Jan 10, 2016 ]
12 questions already asked
The 650 watts RMS from your Alpine amp is enough to power this enclosure very well but not enough to realize its full potential (1000 watts RMS). I hope that helps! My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=5 [ Ryan Feb 27, 2016 ] Staff
That depends greatly on the other speakers in your system and how low they are rated/crossed over to play. Ideally, you'll set the low pass for the subwoofers at or around the frequency you've set to high-pass your full-range speakers. I hope that helps!

I have a amp pushing at 700 rms and these things hit hard so your 1700 rms should be fine they won't over power the subs if you keep the amp turned down a little [ BLAKE Feb 23, 2015 ]

1 answer The Kicker 40KX1600.1amp seems ideal for this enclosure, I just wanted to get some other peoples opinions, because I'm not really as to which amp I should get for this encloser. Some people say you need to have it a little over powered, some say to just power it to where it says to. Im just not sure what to do man? [ Andrew Cashman Feb 23, 2014 ]
Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your subs I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system. [ Krissy Feb 24, 2014 ] Staff
The 40DCWR122 has a single wiring terminal out for wiring at 2-ohms. Since that's what the 12CX1200.1 operates at you'll go from negative on the subwoofer input to negative of the amplifier output and do the same for the positive. You should be all set from there! [ Krissy Feb 25, 2014 ] Staff
A good rule of thumb for speakers is to get an amplifier that is up to twice the RMS of the speakers at the proper ohms. That amp will work perfect. It is better to over power speakers then under power them, that when speaker damage will occur. [ Matthew Jan 28, 2014 ]
Ideally you don't want to push more than 1,600 watts RMS to these subs. If your amp is pushing out more than that, you can always set the gain down. However, with an amp that is double the power, you might want to consider an amp that will be a closer match power wise. [ Jeff Jan 19, 2014 ] Staff
The sub box has a single set of 2-ohm inputs. This will mean that you need to bridge a 2-channel amp. You will want to make sure your amp is 2-ohm compatible in mono. [ Jeff Dec 16, 2013 ] Staff
